Bruins' Bartkowski In Line To Sit

News: Matt Bartkowski is slated to be a scratch Saturday against the Coyotes, the Boston Herald reports.

Bruins' Bartkowski Dishes Out Two Assists

News: Matt Bartkowski contributed a pair of assists and picked up four PIM in Friday's shootout win over Columbus.
Analysis: That's three points in two games for Matt Bartkowski, who has only appeared in eight games this season. Considering he doesn't play on the power play and has never recorded more than 18 points in a season, don't expect much more offense from the 26-year-old. Bartkowski's on the third defensive pairing and won't provide much value outside of the deepest of leagues.

Bruins' Bartkowski Listed As Healthy Inactive

News: Matt Bartkowski is expected to be a healthy scratch for Monday's game against the Devils, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: This will be the fifth-straight game that Matt Bartkowski will be a healthy scratch from the lineup. Keeping that in mind, there's likely far better options than the 26-year-old native of Pittsburgh when considering his propensity to stay on the bench.

Bruins' Bartkowski Sits

News: Matt Bartkowski was a healthy scratch Thursday against the Sabres, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: With Matt Bartkowski scratched and Torey Krug out, Joe Morrow and David Warsofsky entered the Bruins' lineup Thursday. Through five games, Bartkowski has yet to record a point, while carrying a minus-4 plus/minus rating in that span. Given the team's blue line injuries, Bartkowski will be needed by the Bruins in the coming weeks, though in the short term, it's unclear how soon we'll see him back in the lineup.

Matt Bartkowski

Bruins' Bartkowski Set To See Action

News: With Kevan Miller out indefinitely with a shoulder injury, Matt Bartkowski is in line to rejoin the Bruins' lineup Tuesday against the Sharks, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: After being a healthy scratch for six of the Bruins' first seven games, Matt Bartkowski figures to see regular duty in Miller's absence. While Bartkowski doesn't produce enough offense to merit fantasy consideration, his mobility and ability in the transition game are assets to the Bruins' blue line corps.

Matt Bartkowski, D, BOS

Matt Bartkowski

Bruins' Bartkowski Sits

News: Matt Bartkowski was scratched in favor of Kevan Miller for Wednesday's game against Detroit.
Analysis: Matt Bartkowski's mobility is an asset to the Bruins' blue-line corps, but he has only suited up for one game this season. He could be in and out of the team's lineup often unless injuries create a consistent spot for him.

Bruins' Bartkowski Suits Up Monday

News: Matt Bartkowski skated on a defensive pair with Dennis Seidenberg in Monday's loss to the Avs, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: Matt Bartkowski, who was making his season debut for the B's on Monday, entered the lineup at the expense of Kevan Miller. In 19:50 worth of ice time, Bartkowski finished with a minus-2 rating. Going forward, it's plausible that Bartkowski could be in and out of the lineup, until injuries hit the Boston blue line.

Matt Bartkowski

Bruins' Bartkowski Likely To Sit

News: Matt Bartkowski appears to be the odd man out on the Boston blue line for Wednesday's season opener against the Flyers, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: Though the Bruins traded Johnny Boychuk, they are still carrying an extra defenseman, and out of the gate it looks like Matt Bartkowski is the team's spare, while Adam McQuaid and Kevan Miller are on track to suit up Wednesday.

Matt Bartkowski

Bruins Could Move Bartkowski

News: Matt Bartkowski remains a candidate to be traded by the Bruins, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Adam McQuaid is another player that the Bruins could move to free up some salary cap room, but with Torey Krug and Reilly Smith now back in the fold on team-friendly deals, it looks like Johnny Boychuk (and his $3,366,667 contract) will be retained by the Bruins.

Bruins Sign Bartkowski To One-Year Deal

News: Bartkowski agreed to a one-year deal with Matt Bartkowski worth $1.25 million.

Bartkowski -- who has 84 NHL games under his belt -- is still looking for his first regular season tally, but despite the lack of goals, his mobility and ability in the transition game are assets to the Bruins.

In his first full NHL season, Bartkowski helped fill the void created by Dennis Seidenberg's injury and ended up averaging 19:32 worth of ice time per game, displaying solid mobility in the process. The report suggests that he could be looking at a deal next season that tops the $1 million mark.

News: Matt Bartkowski (illness) appears to be back in the lineup Tuesday against the Red Wings, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Matt Bartkowski was on the ice for pregame warmups and was paired up with Johnny Boychuk, a sign he'll be good to go for Game 4. Andrej Meszaros will head to the press box as a result.

Matt Bartkowski

Bruins' Bartkowski Could Play Tuesday

News: Matt Bartkowski (illness) will take warmups with the Bruins prior to Tuesday's game against the Red Wings.

News: Matt Bartkowski (illness) participated in Monday's optional skate, the Bruins' official site reports.

Bruins' Bartkowski Out For Game 2

News: Matt Bartkowski (illness) will not be in the lineup for Sunday's Game 2 against the Red Wings, CSNNE.com's Joe Haggerty reports.

Bruins' Bartkowski (Illness) Practices Saturday

News: Matt Bartkowski (illness) took part in Saturday's practice after missing Friday's Game 1.
Analysis: It was the first practice all week for Matt Bartkowski, who was dealing with an illness. His status is still up in the air for Game 2, though his presence on the ice Saturday seems to indicate there's a good chance he'll play. Coach Claude Julien said a determination will be made depending on how Bartkowski feels Sunday.

Bruins' Bartkowski (Undisclosed) Out Friday

News: Matt Bartkowski (undisclosed) will miss Game 1 on Friday after not appearing in warmups.
Analysis: Matt Bartkowski hasn't skated all week so his absence in the warmups and Game 1 isn't shocking. He will probably be questionable for Game 2 as well, and will join Daniel Paille, Chris Kelly and Kevan Miller as injury-related scratches for Game 1.

Bruins' Bartkowski Iffy For Playoff Opener

News: Matt Bartkowski (unspecified reason) did not participate in the Bruins' optional morning skate Friday, csnne.com reports.
Analysis: The report notes that Matt Bartkowski hasn't been seen on the ice since Sunday's season finale against the Devils, so he's iffy heading into Friday's playoff opener against the Red Wings. It Bartkowski is unable to suit up Friday, look for Andrej Meszaros to fill in on the Bruins' blue line.

Bruins' Bartkowski Misses Practice Again

News: Matt Bartkowski (unspecified reason) did not practice Thursday, the Bruins' official site reports.

Bruins' Bartkowski Misses Practice

News: Matt Bartkowski (unspecified reason) did not practice Wednesday.
Analysis: It's unclear what's ailing Matt Bartkowski, but we should have a better idea regarding his status for Friday's playoff opener by Thursday. Bartkowski recorded 18 assists and a plus-22 rating in 64 games for the Bruins this past season, so in playoff pools he's only an option for heavy backers of Boston.

Bruins' Bartkowski Notches Helper On Thursday

News: Matt Bartkowski notched an assist in 17:23 worth of ice time in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: His helper came when Patrice Bergeron tipped in Matt Bartkowski shot from the point to open up the scoring in Thursday's tilt. Bartkowski now has 16 assists in 57 games, and though he's still looking for his first regular-season NHL goal (in 77 games overall), Bartkowski has carved out a steady role in the Bruins' blue-line rotation, thanks to his mobility and ability in the transition game.

Matt Bartkowski

Bruins' Bartkowski A Healthy Scratch

News: Matt Bartkowski will be a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Devils.
Analysis: As a result, Corey Potter is slated to make his Bruins' debut Tuesday. Though Matt Bartkowski notched an assist in Monday's win over the Wild, it wasn't his best game defensively, so he'll take a seat Tuesday, with 15 assists in 53 games (and a plus-21 rating) to his credit this season.

Bruins' Bartkowski Goes Plus-4

News: Matt Bartkowski notched an assist in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Rangers and recorded a plus-4 rating in the contest.
Analysis: Though Matt Bartkowski has yet to score a goal in 45 games this season -- and through 65 career NHL games overall -- he has chipped in 12 assists while recording a solid plus-20 rating. Given that Bartkowski isn't a member of the B's power-play rotation, his fantasy upside is limited for the time being, but the 25-year-old blueliner -- who has two points over his last three games -- does bring underrated mobility to the table.
